General Topics






Brian McAlister is author of the bestselling book Full Recovery and CEO/Founder of the Full Recovery Wellness Center in Fairfield, New Jersey.  He grew up in a working-class, Irish-Catholic family in a small town in New Jersey not far from Manhattan.  As a teenager, Brian descended into alcoholism and drug abuse and, for most of his 20s, led the life of a “nomadic drug-addicted biker.”  A horrific motorcycle accident started Brian on the road to recovery and the realization that he had a higher purpose.  It also saved his marriage and his relationship with his son.  After getting sober in 1990, the author became a successful businessman, entrepreneur, counselor and motivational speaker in the recovery community.   Brian was named a board member at Freedom House, one of the country’s leading addiction treatment centers, where he worked with hundreds of clients and honed what would become his Full Recovery philosophy and program.  He published the first edition of Full Recovery in 2008 and soon after opened the Full Recovery Wellness Center.
